Last week, Clif Bar and Sender Films released Generation Up!, a video featuring teenage rock climbers Ashima Shiraishi, 14, and Kai Lightner, 16, on YouTube. The short film shows the two athletes as they climb routes together inside Norway’s Flatanger cave. 

Lightner won the 2015 Sport Climbing Series National Championships last March. “I’d really like to push myself physically and mentally. After I finish my junior year, I’m going to take the fall off and just climb outside,” he told Rock and Ice on Tuesday.

Shiraishi, the second female climber ever to conquer a V14 problem, is known for her focus and mental toughness. “I want to show girls it’s possible for them,” she says in the video.
